I only ask about the role of the Holy Spirit because in Romans 8 it speaks of His Spirit bearing witness with the believer’s spirit that he/she is a child of God. Is this not our assurance as well? Thank you for putting up with my questions!
Thank you Pastor for putting into words what the Holy Spirit has been teaching me. This is beautiful confirmation and I thank our Saviour Jesus Christ for proclaiming the truth through you. Burdened with you for those not firmly rooted and growing in the faith!
This message sinks deep into my soul. Because, I ask myself a lot if I really am a follower of Christ. Am I saved? I ask, because when the time comes to prove it, I drop the ball a lot. I really want it. I wan to give Him my life. BUT, myself gets in the way.
I’ve shared this one with people Pastor James. Good stuff. There’s something about knowing your saved that wants you to scream it from the rooftops. It’s something you want to share with everyone, not because of boastfulness or pride but because you want to share that joy with others.
